Griff's class has two traveling mascots: a stuffed Cat in the Hat, and a plush Curious George. Every weekend, two children are randomly selected to take home the toys and document their adventures in a journal. Griff has been hoping that he would get to bring Curious George home, and on Friday, his name was picked! Perfect timing, because he had plans to travel to Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge with my parents and then have an overnight stay at their house.
George attended a soccer game before heading off on his adventure. According to the photographic evidence collected by his handler, they came into close contact with many species, including llamas, camels, water buffalo, deer, zebras, and at least one ostrich.
